Egypt Islamists press generals to sack government

Egypt's most influential political group, the Muslim Brotherhood, is accusing the country's ruling military of maneuvering to keep the Islamists from power, repeating demands to dismiss the military-appointed Cabinet.

The Brotherhood, which holds close to half the seats in parliament, criticized the Cabinet, saying it has failed to solve the country's economic crisis.

Saad Amara, a parliamentarian with the Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party, said Thursday that the military is trying to protect its privileged position by "making up" crises in the streets.

Brotherhood-military relations have became increasingly confrontational in the weeks before Egypt's presidential election, set for May. After that, the military pledges to turn over power to civilians.
